crow laws, it was all about not allowing people of two different races to reproduce. i hadn't quite put it all together until i heard you say that, so i don't want other folks to misses that. and yet surprisingly the gender gap is less extreme than i might think it would be given these circumstances. is it -- when i look at the numbers, it says to me, yes, there's a gender gap, but it's still being driven primarily by women of color and by young women. so what's going on not just with the extremes of the republican party, but with women who hear this and i'm like, yeah, i'm town with them. what is that some. >> the conventional wisdom is when the republicans say these extreme things, those women will be turned off and vote if democrats. i don't think that's necessarily the case. it's not that they don't reject what is being said, because they do. but at the same time sometimes if you're independent and you are dead on the in middle, it's because you're turned off by booth pa both party. so democrats have to remember to make the case that this is the par part yy you should come to. >

our campaign finance law. so now there are no limits to what outside groups can do. and so what we're seeing now is an explosion in that area. although it's a problem that existed before citizens united. >> i want to pick up on what leslie was saying earlier. the 501(c)(3)s -- these are all named obviously for the codes, for the tax codes. the 501(c)(3)s where we actually see an enormous number of progressive action going on in these non-profits, they are barred. they can't write these checks. so to me that's where it feels like there is part of this critical asymmetry occurring. is that right, the difference between the threes and fours. >> there are ones that aren't ideological at all. sometimes the group that benefits a local library is a 501(c)(3). it's charitable organization. a c-4 can spend in elections. because there are so many wealthy donors and corporations on the right, this election cycle to defeat president obama, they are pouring money into these groups that don't have disclose -- >> that $74 million spent in opposition to the president with only $5.1 million spent in o

coverage, save money, or both. and check out the preventive benefits you get after the health care law. medicare open enrollment. now's the time. visit medicare.gov or call 1-800-medicare. ♪ >>> admit it, at some point we've all said it, that size doesn't matter. but, but, it sure does. especially when it comes to the number of women in elected office. 17 women currently serve as u.s. senators. 73 out of 435 is the number of women who are members of the u.s. house of representatives. in total, that means that roughly 17% of the 535 seats in the 112th congress are occupied by women. if women want to change that balance, they're going to have to run for office. this year 18 women are run for the senate. that's breaking the record of 14 set in 2010. on the house said, 163 women could win seats. the most since 2004 when 141 women made bids. so, could this be the new year of the woman? is that possible? >> again, i think this is another hidden blessing of 2010. i think when women -- i know my daughter viewed the obsession, almost the obsession of women's health, particularly a lot of

belcher. pollster for obama 2012. barbara arn wine, the lawyers committee for civil rights on the law. and katon dawson, former chair of the south carolina gop. >> thank you for joining me. >> thank you. cornell, i want to start with a fairly recent study that was taking a look at sort of what's happened between 2008 and 2012 in terms of attitudes towards african-americans. it was roeported that racial bis has risen a bit over the course of the four years where americans are asked expressly about black attitudes. we have 51% of americans expressing anti-black attitudement whereas in 2008, there were only 48%. particularly looking at implicit measures, the things we're not aware of. we see 56% of americans with the anti-black attitudes and only 49% in 2008. what does that tell you in. >> actually, i look at that number and think the glass is half full. >> yeah. absolutely. >> but it also talks and hurdles any sort of minority, if you're running for office, you enter the conversation with stereotypical baggage or baggage that comes along with you. same thing with women running for offic
